Ghana 2, Germany 2: Best game of the Cup, and the most exciting half of the World Cup since the second half of Italy-Brazil in 1982. Maybe if FIFA just allowed Ghana and the Ivory Coast to send two teams to each World Cup all of my complaints against African football would be answered.

Also, Miroslav Klose became the all-time leading goal scorer at the World Cup when he tied the game at 2-2 with 20 minutes to play. For those who wondered how much they should be celebrating a US World Cup win when the winning goal was scored by a German who has never lived in the US, please take note that Klose was born and raised in Poland, and who has said that his nationality should properly be referred to as "European".  This is international soccer, folks; in the end, we're all from somewhere else....
